This historic landmark, First United Methodist Church, circa 1925, is the fourth sanctuary to house the congregation and the third to be erected on this site -- 212 3rd St N. The second and third structures were built in 1902 and 1905, their demolition being necessary to accommodate the expanding congregation. The prominent 144-foot bell tower originally housed a 10-bell carillon, later increased to 15 bells. The largest bell weighs in at 2,208 pounds. Photo courtesy Picture St. Pete.
